7. Earth`s longer days caused oxygen growth, says study

• Scientists have a new idea for how Earth got its oxygen: the planet slowed down and days got longer.

The more continuous light the smelly microbes got, the more oxygen they produced. One of the great mysteries in science is just how Earth went from a planet with minimal oxygen to the breathable air we have now. Scientists long figured microbes called cyanobacteria were involved, but couldn`t tell what started the great oxygenation event.
